PCI and Vulnerability Assessments - What’s Missing?

PCI and Vulnerability Assessments - What’s Missing?hleclair Wed, 05/04/2016 - 15:00 Resource Type Webinars Resource Content All regulatory requirements (HIPAA, PCI, etc.) include a mandate for assessing vulnerabilities in systems that manage or store sensitive data. Organizations often opt to conduct vulnerability assessments on an annual, quarterly, or even monthly basis. But while vulnerability assessment tools can identify unpatched or misconfigured code bases, these tools overlook a large portion of an organization’s attack surface: known vulnerabilities in applications that are built in-house. These applications will not have public updates, nor will the thousands of open source components they utilize be included in public disclosures. This is concerning because over 6,000 vulnerabilities in open source projects have been reported since 2014. Register for this webinar to discover how to protect yourself.

WordPress Docker Container | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 05/03/2016 - 21:45
I have an article in the recently released “DZone Guide to Building and Deploying Applications on the Cloud” entitled “Fullstack Engineering in the Age of Hybrid Cloud”. In this article I discuss the need and skills of a Fullstack Engineer with relation to troubleshooting and repairing complex, distributed hybrid cloud applications. My recent experiences with troubleshooting issues with my Docker WordPress container only reinforce the details I wrote about in this piece.

Large-Scale IoT Initiatives | @ThingsExpo #IoT #IIoT #M2M #InternetOfThings

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 05/03/2016 - 21:15
A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approaches to gather data at scale from mobile and other remote devices. This data is used to create real-time business insights for end users.
